Many CPAs struggle with people-pleasing – saying yes, when they might prefer to say no.
As a habit, it can result in all kinds of undesired outcomes, and because it comes with some pretty sneaky rewards, it can be hard to give up.
Here today to talk with me about this problem is my guest, Sara Bybee Fisk.
Sarah is the creator of a 16-week course called Stop People-Pleasing and a master at simplifying the complex.
Sara talks about how people-pleasing is showing up in our business, and what we can do to stop it.
— “Never say yes in the moment. Always give yourself some kind of buffer.”
— “We say no, or we give the answer that we know we don't want to give, because we don't feel like we actually have a choice.”
— “People-pleasing is the way we are taught from the time we're very little to get our needs met. It’s normal that we do it.”
— “We are programmed to avoid discomfort, to seek pleasure and to conserve energy. And stopping people-pleasing violates every single one of those.”
— “There's no opt out button for discipline.”
